Consensus: The witty and charming In Good Company offers laughs at the expense of corporate culture.

Not only the best American picture of 2004, but also the most grown-up movie to come from Hollywood in recent years.

If the rest of the movie were as good as Scarlett, we might give a damn.

A bland, occasionally phlegmatic pastiche of cliches and dull encounters.

Ultimately, this workplace fairy tale creates its own cheer. When its time is up, you'll feel like you've been in good company.

Feels like a movie written by and for marketing types -- Quaid and Marg Helgenberger (as his wife) to appeal to baby boomers, and Grace and Johansson for Generation Y. That's a business strategy, not a movie.

Doris Toumarkine
Film Journal International

An engaging diversion that lovingly, wisely plays with human foibles and uncomfortable truths.

Good film and script, don't really like Scarlett Johansson in this one but the plot is interesting and Dennis Quaid and Topher do a good job.

Underrated gem. Witty and funny.
